Not fully back into the swing of things since the trip and I hit a little medical snag this week but can't stop.  I've got articles on incarceration and on colleges in the works and I need to decide how I'm going to chose two winners of Dr. Iyanla Vanzant's book ("Peace from Broken Pieces:  How to Get Through What You're Going Through") for my radio show tomorrow.  She'll be my special guest and taking your calls so get in early (818-985-5735 is the call in number).  Any ideas? Please post them.

Please join me and Rev. Dr. Iyanla Vanzant on Liberated Sisters tomorrow....
